THE Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is very active in the governance of the country, albeit cautiously. The social organisation does not want to make any faux pas this time. It has been observed that some of the ministers are still waiting for the appointment of their Principal Secretary/Private Secretary/Personal Assistant. As per sources, a list of government servants who are RSS sympathisers or those who have sharp technical knowhow is being prepared. The RSS is also said to be reshuffling its top hierarchy to manage the BJP in a better way. Ram Madhav, the new general secretary of the BJP, is likely to be shifted out from the party to some important assignment. Ram Lal, another RSS pracharak who is deputed to the BJP, has been assigned charge of overseeing the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections in 2017. On the other hand, Krishna Gopal, an experienced and capable pracharak, has been brought in as party general secretary from the North-East. All these activities have changed the dynamics within the BJP office at 9, Ashoka Road, and the middle and lower rank party office-bearers are finding it difficult to acclimatise to the fast-changing circumstances in the party.
